Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars: How to Encourage Healthy Eating Habits in Kids


Did you know…?

Snacking is an effective way to fit extra nutrients into your diet and prevent overeating at mealtimes. According to a study published in “The Journal of Nutrition”, approximately 97 percent of Americans snack, getting an average of 24 percent of their calories from snacks. With snacking providing this much of the day’s calories, choosing healthy options is crucial.

What is Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars?

At the start of the natural foods movement in the 1960’s, Richard Marson decided to open a bakery that championed all natural ingredients—a new concept back in the day. With a marvelous entrepreneurial spirit and passion in his baking, Richard created a successful family bakery. Dave Marson, Richard’s son, shared his father’s zeal and chose to make the family bakery his life’s work as well. He spent several decades honing his skills as a baker before acting on an idea he had been exploring for years. In 2010, Dave partnered with his son Sam to create Nature’s Bakery with a mission of making delicious convenient on-the-go snacks and foods that complement health conscious living and everyday active lifestyles.  This is how Nature’s Bakery Fig bars came into play.

What the reviewer thought

With the topic of obesity making the news just about every week, it’s important for adults to encourage healthy eating habits in the home. Especially for children, the habits they learn now will influence how they eat throughout their lifetime. This is why I keep Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars in my Pantry for my family to snack on.
Adults and kids snack several times throughout the day. This irregular eating is actually a healthy way to consume the daily calories they need, however, a person can get into nutritional trouble when snack time is seen as an excuse to have sugary foods. This is why I like to stock my pantry and refrigerator with lots of healthy choices, such as fruit, bite-sized vegetables, low-fat yogurt, nuts, cheeses and healthy, quick on the go snacks that my whole family can take anywhere they go.

I introduced my family of five to four different flavors:

They loved all four flavors. Even my daughter who is the pickiest eater in the house loved the fig bars. She even takes them to soccer practice to give her a little extra boost of energy when she begins to get tired or hungry.
The whole family enjoys them including me. I love the fact that they are made without no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors too.    Most people don’t realize that many preservatives can give health problems. They can cause different allergies and conditions such as hyperactivity and Attention Deficit Disorder in some people who are sensitive to specific chemicals. The foods containing additives can cause asthma, hay fever and certain reactions such as rashes, vomiting, headache, tight chest, hives and worsening of eczema. They may affect RNA, thyroid, and enzymes (affecting RNA can cause tumor growth). Most have not been studied for safety or toxicity. They are all synthesized chemicals that don’t even have common names. Most artificial flavorings are derived from petroleum. Most artificial flavors actually contain many chemical ingredients, not just one. Many of those chemicals are volatile.  This is why eating natural foods is so important.
It came quickly, packaged well and when I tried it, I was impressed by how delicious it tasted.  All four tasted great!  I recommend it to others.  I will continue to buy Nature’s Bakery Fig Bars for my family.
